Beginning Feb. 18 and continuing through Feb. 22, Taylor County Future Farmers of America will take part in National FFA Week.

This is a week celebrated by FFA members all over the country in honor of Presidents' Day. Taylor County FFA has been celebrating the week for more than 30 years, and has another week of celebration planned for later this year.

Today, which is Presidents' Day, begins FFA Week for Taylor County FFA. The chapter will celebrate by attending Mr. Gattis' for fellowship and food, and later going to Green River Cinema 6 for a movie.

Tuesday begins dress up days, where students dress to a picked theme. Tuesday's theme is camouflage. The night's activity is a basketball game.

On Wednesday, students are asked to dress up like an advisor from the chapter, and then will go bowling that night at Phillips' Lanes.

Western day is on Thursday, where students will dress up as cowboys and cowgirls. During fourth period, students will have the ag olympics to test their athletic skills acquired on the farm. Events include seed spitting, toy tractor racing and the hay bale toss. Later that night, members will have a corn hole tournament.

Friday will be FFA day. Students are asked to wear their FFA clothing, such as jackets, T-shirts and polos. They will end the celebration with a bonfire that night.

The Taylor County Chapter invites everyone to celebrate "Blue Jackets, Bright Futures" with their chapter.
